Lager spill from tanker closes Newport road

A main road near Newport was closed for about 30 minutes after lager spilled from a tanker.

The emergency services were called to the A467 between Bassaleg and Risca after the liquid spilled from the vehicle on Wednesday afternoon.

The road was closed to allow fire crews to hose the lager away.

Gwent Police and South Wales Fire Service were unable to say how much was spilled, but police said it was enough to require the road to be closed.
